EQUINOX Series of detectors is now shipping to distribution networks and on to customers who have pre-ordered detectors!

Field testing has been completed and detector software finalised. Gold Mode now operates with multi-frequency and there is an Iron Bias setting that lets you adjust the detector’s response to ferrous targets. The first batch of detectors has been manufactured, some of which you can see below.

"EQUINOX really is a game-changer. Minelab’s new Multi-IQ, simultaneous multi-frequency technology provides significant performance improvements over single-frequency and switchable frequency VLF detectors.” Peter Charlesworth, Minelab President

With EQUINOX and Multi-IQ, Minelab is providing what all detectorists have been waiting for — fast simultaneous multi-frequency, lightweight, waterproof, 3 wireless audio technologies, 4 practical and versatile detect modes — all for a comparable price to single-frequency market offerings.

So, which detector will you obsolete?

We appreciate everyone’s patience in waiting for EQUINOX to be released and your ongoing interest. To supplement the Getting Started Guide supplied with the detector, the detailed Instruction Manual (English) is now available online, with other languages to follow soon.

Download the full Instruction Manual here.

*Initial availability will be limited in all regions due to the very high pre-release demand. Dealers will soon be notified regarding local allocations and shipments. Please contact your local dealer for specific availability information. We will be doing our best to get detectors to all customers across February to fulfil pre-orders as quickly as possible.

Just heard some dealers are only getting 1 detector and may not be able to fill pre orders for another month. I cannot see the sense of only sending one unit. One guy is #2 on the pre order list and will not get one in the first shipment. I know I would be ticked off. I am hoping I will be able to have one in my hands this season but it is not looking very hopeful

Kellyco is currently shipping pre-orders from 3rd week of November. If you ordered in March you have a couple more months to wait.
